Besides that, F-450 will continue to offer its 6.2-liter V8 that generates 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Diesel powertrain is optional and it is the same 6.7-liter PowerStroke. This engine will return 450 horsepower and up to 935 lb-ft of torque. Blue Oval manufacturer also promised some improvements for its gasoline and diesel outputs.
